All of my switches are  2960S and I like the CLI commanf. I have a new site the will only need 6  ports with VoIP. I did some research and see that I can either get a  SG300-10MP or WS-C3560CG-8PC-S. My questions is which one is better.  Thanks

The 3560 line is a capable and reliable product line, but expensive.  The Cisco small business line is cheaper, but often hard to work with for more complex settings.  Since you already have 2960's on the network, the 3560 will likley be easier to work with because 99% of the IOS commands are the same.
